The prices aren't getting any cheaper and at this point there may be value in fading, as the Indians can't win every game the rest of the way. However, the Indians continue to win, and regardless of the prices we're getting, there's money to be made when a team wins games for nearly three weeks straight. So, until the Indians finally lose, give me the hottest team in baseball.
